Fossil Fuels
Fossil Fuels

Fossil fuel power plants provide reliable energy at a heavy cost. Coal’s affordability is offset by polluting air and water supplies. Natural gas burns more cleanly, however, its extraction and transportation release methane that traps significantly more heat than CO2. It can also experience high price volatility due to market forces, exploration, and extraction costs.

Nuclear Power
Nuclear Power Plants

Nuclear power plants also provide a reliable source of energy. The downside is the expensive capital costs due to safety, emergency, containment, radioactive waste, and storage systems. In addition, environmental damage from a nuclear meltdown is extremely damaging to the environment and is a threat to humans and wildlife.
